Since 2010, Jennifer Lawrence has not had a lot of free time. She has starred in over 14 films in the past seven years, which averages out to be two movies a year. That means she films for 2-3 months, promotes the movie for another month or two, then films another movie…repeat process.
And now it looks like she’s finally ready to take a break. During an interview with The Today Show, the 27-year-old actress revealed she’s planning on taking a break from acting, “I’m taking a break. I don’t have anything set for two years,” she said.
So what will she be doing during these two years? Well, we know she won’t be starting a family. Even though she appears to be infatuated with her boyfriend/director Darren Aronofsky, she does not want to have kids with him…or anybody else.
She told E! News that being a mother doesn’t sound appealing to her right now. She was asked if she was feeling “the pangs of motherhood as she gets older,” and this was her response:
“Not at all. They are actually getting less and less as I get older, which is starting to worry me. I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to work! When I was 21 or 22 I was like, ‘I can’t wait to be a mother. Now I’m like…[shocked face].”
That’s fine with us. We’ll take more movies over more babies any day. Speaking of movies, you can check out J-Law in a theater near you this weekend in the psychological thriller, mother!
